Is impact investing the future of VC/PE investing?

Increasingly VC and PE investors are required to demonstrate their ESG credentials to complete their fundraise. Does that mean there is a move towards investing in truly impactful businesses?

  • What does “impact investing” mean to you?
  • Many PE/VC firms are signed up to the Principles of Re-sponsible Investing, what has that meant in prac-tice? Are you now looking at businesses that may deliv-er lower returns but more positive societal returns? Are you really prepared to sacrifice money for good?
  • With the proliferation of early stage tech for good inves-tors, how many lower to mid-market firms are tracking the progress of these businesses with a view to follow on investment? Do you need more access to these social entrepreneurs?
  • Is it possible to continue to measure the impact as these businesses scale?
  • We have included a list of mission-led businesses that are scaling and raising funds and will deliver good commercial returns to investors. Is this the future of all investing?

Corporate venture capital and high growth

Global CVC funding grew by 142% in 2021 to $169.3bn, with 221 new operators entering the market. What is fuelling this expansion, and is it sustainable?

  • Are CVC and VC investors natural partners on the cap table?
  • Where are the tensions, and how can they be resolved?
  • Do high growth companies see CVC as a good option, or is there a degree of caution about the value they can bring?
